APTLD Board Meeting Communiqué (16 January 2020)

meeting and considered a range of matters. A summary of the Meeting is published
in this Communiqué.


Progress in Preparations for APTLD77

satisfaction that the number of registrations for the Meeting is well in excess
of 100 and all moderator roles and nearly all the speaking slots have already
been filled in well ahead of schedule.

with much appreciation sponsorship contributions by CentralNic, Neustar and VentraIP
Group.


GM’s Proposal on an Emergency Meeting Relocation
Action Plan

The Board discussed GM’s
proposal and agreed that the community’s concerns about safety and security
should be a top priority while organizing and holding Members Meetings. The
Board also noticed that the general situation in and around the APTLD77
location does not suggest any need for an urgent relocation.

The Board also agreed
that the Action Plan should be updated and resolved to create a Board Working
Group to update the document and subsequently decide on its formal status.
